You needn't worry - hawthorn can cope with any amount of brutal pruning. Farmers hack them virtually to the ground with tractor- driven flail bushwhacked and the hedges spring back up again. They're tough as old boots.
Whats more concerning is that your neighbour did something as radical as this without talking to you first. Was it done in innocence with good intentions or is this action the result of a dispute about the hedgerow?
